Tell them you will take them to Old Tucson, YAY! Then, as you walk down the dusty streets past dilapidated buildings, you can say, "How would you like to someday be a lung-impaired Iron Door Mine worker, or maybe a dance-hall floozy in the Grand Palace Saloon? Or fall off a roof in a sun-beaten corral? And you know there's a reason that the proprietor of Dead Eye Dan Shooting Gallery has a dead eye. That's how you could end up if you don't study hard and go to college!"
